Former MIA's Academy cadet pressured by law enforcers, his defence asserts

In Krasnodar, the court has prolonged the detention in custody until January 15, 2018, to Anzor Magomadov, a resident of Sochi, a former cadet of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) Academy, accused of plotting a terror act and attempting to join militants in Syria. According to his advocates, law enforcers put pressure on the defendant to obtain his confession.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that Anzor Magomadov, a former cadet of the MIA's Academy, a 27-year-old resident of Sochi, was detained in August 2016. According to his relatives, during the detention of Anzor Magomadov, law enforcers planted weapons and ammunition on him.

On December 6, in Krasnodar, the court prolonged the Anzor Magomadov's arrest for a month, until January 15, 2018. This was told the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent by Yuri Dudchenko, an advocate of the defendant.

The Anzor Magomadov's guilt has not been proven, and he has been unreasonably kept in custody for over a year, the defender believes.

At the court hearing on the extension of the arrest, Anzor Magomadov announced the pressure from law enforcers who demanded a confession from him, the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent was informed by Tatiana Chistyakova, the second advocate of the defendant.

"However, Anzor Magomadov demands to conduct a thorough investigation into his case and detect the falsifications... committed," the advocate said.
